I don’t know the nature of your struggles, but you have found the key to happiness in expressing gratitude. I received an email about this very issue today. I feel we shared something special. It actually makes my heart sing to know others can choose to express gratitude freely. I am a blogger and I recently wrote a post about gratitude as a lifestyle. I was stunned to receive a very unpleasant email in return from a person who responded that she felt like she did not owe anyone for anything. After I collected my thoughts, I wrote another post describing how a reader tried to undermine my belief in gratitude. Thank goodness I recieved a positive reaction to my beliefs.
